Fun For The Whole Family

What's On

HFest is a family orientated outdoor music festival which aims to bring together the families and friends of our wounded Service Men and Women alongside the Community to celebrate all things connected to the power of music and the hugely important role music can play in their recovery and rehabilitation.

Why H-Fest?

The Hasler Recovery Centre is a world class military rehabilitation and recovery centre based in Devon which specifically cares for complex wounded, injured or sick Marines, Sailors and occasionally tri-service personnel.  HFest came from the Hasler music therapy project PROJECT ROCK when a passionate group of injured and ill Marines and Sailors from Hasler formed a band and the first HFest was born at Deepway Stables in Woodbury!  The rest, as they say is history...

The festival has gone from strength to strength gaining backing from many charities and this year will be held just outside Exmouth on 13 acres of stunning National Trust land overlooking the River Exe Estuary - come along and do your bit to show your support to our troops and have a great time with friends and family in the glorious Devon countryside!
